Why use a Gatehead Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Gatehead home-owners trying to sell their own properties. Many websites now offer services to assist with this, but at AgentQuote.co.uk, we still believe there is great value in using the services of a good local estate agent to market and sell your property.
Here are some points to consider when deciding whether to find an estate agent to help you market and sell or let your property.
Because we are all proud of our houses
Property viewers may well be a brutal group, marching all over the house like royalty, offering unplesant opinions and pulling discontented faces. Even the most well kept houses are in for rough treatement, simply because the first's like is some other person's non-preference. For this reason it's perhaps for the better if you let a Gatehead property agent take property viewers about your house - and leave them to filter back any useful comments. Nobody likes to have their house picked on by strangers.
Gatehead agents are good at marketing property
Gatehead house sale agents are good at marketing properties. Not everyone is born to be a sales person - and the work of selling is often a job for an expert. Your estate agent will have the knowledge to take flattering pictures of your house, how to create a good description of it and where to market those details to get the greatest amount of enquiries.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Gatehead area will give your agent the edge when trying to find a buyer for your property. They will know the location of local amenities, the local schools, which areas are well thought of and the pricing and sales trends. They will also be able to advise you of the best price that can be achieved in the area if various improvements are made to a property, and how much to reduce by to get a fast sale.
A good Gatehead estate agent will be an expert at marketing your property. They will know how to advertise your property in all the right places. Ideally your Gatehead property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Typically an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Gatehead property post. Other forms of marketing include window cards, handouts, mail-shots and open-house days. Remember, the frequency and quality of the content of the advertising is just as important as where it appears.

Molehills And Ants Nests - If your garden suffers from Mole Hills or ants nests, then take appropriate action to eliminate these pests (humanely, of course). These garden pests could be off-putting to Gatehead property buyers.
Clean out the attic - dump all the clutter. - Some viewers will want to take a look in your loft . If the attic is to the brim with stuff that look likes it may remain there then this may well be deterring. Also, a clear empty loft-space will give the appearance that it may have loft-conversion potential.
Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Gatehead property on the market, then you may want to consider getting your garden fences painted / repaired.
Privacy is an important issue for many house buyers, and a tidy, secure, well-maintained boundary with neighbouring properties will be a big plus, rather than "another job that will need doing".
In the same manner, ensure that hedges and trees are trimmed and tidy.
Spend Up To 1% - It is often advised that a seller should consider spending up to 1% of the sale value of the property on re-decoration, D.I.Y. and / or touching-up to achieve the best price. You should discuss this with a local Gatehead specialist adviser or Gatehead estate agent. A good Gatehead estate agent may be able to point you in the right direction.

Food For Thought
Could I Employ A Web-Based Property Agency?
Perhaps you've noticed there is an increasing number of Web based property agents popping up. Simply put, these are agents that do not own a shop and preferentially leverage the WWW to sell their property stock. These property agencies can frequently drastically under-cut high street property agents. However, there are a few things of importance to look out for ... Do they place adverts in the local paper? Does the agent upload your house onto the main property portals? Does the agency offer accompanied viewings? Should these things not be important to you, then carry on and save a lot of money!
Why Use A Solicitor?
Many people begrudge the money they have to spend when they buy or sell property. Who can blame them? The government's stamp duty, the estate agent's fee, the HIP pack, all the search fees, the new, more expensive land registry fee, and then of course the solicitor's fee. Some people try to cut out the estate agent, others try to cut out the solicitor. Cutting out a Gatehead solicitor is a really bad idea! Use a qualified professional for your property transaction, or you are very likely to regret it!
